Oops, different Noah- that is Noah Fuller that most likely supplied you with that bracelet, I can't take creditgamboge said:
Hi Noah- good to hear from you. I bought a Sumo bracelet from you a year or so ago.
While there may not be much different in outer appearances, the movement is definitely an anachronism compared to today's offerings (as is the tuning fork Accutron movement). I've only got one Seiko-made balance electronic currently- but it is branded Westclox. It seems like they sold quite a few to other companies such as Sears and Westclox- I guess they wanted to get their money's worth from the initial costs. Here it is:gamboge said:
The watch in question is a 3703-7041 from November 1972 with a slim cushion case, concealed stem at 4:00, and a fantastic blue dial. It also has a 19mm metal bracelet stamped Z030 which is the most comfortable metal bracelet I've ever worn. The watch weighs about 82 grams, which after wearing Seiko divers exclusively for the past few years seems ridiculously light. I'm sorry I can't post pics- my computer crashed a few months ago and now I can't make email attachments. I'll see if I can use another computer and post one. Lovely watch and an interesting bit of history. In 1972 when this watch was made I was up to my neck in snow in upstate New York studying. I bought myself a good watch- an Accutron because that was the new technology. The battery leaked in it a few years later and I chucked it. So it goes.
[i]Ouch [/i], that wouldn't owe the original owner anything .
Spectacular dial tho and would be worth repairing if possible ??
I have the blue version and love the way the colour changes with different light .
These electronic watches have fascinated me for some time and I couldn't resist this one .
Now I've got two Elnix models incoming .
Mine definitely doesn't go anywhere near water .
best regards Scott.
I checked the Seiko manual for the 3703B movement and they specify the Eveready EPX77, which is now called and SR44/SR1154SW/303 battery.
